 LOOK MA I'M ON THE TEEVEE BOX!
So for the past few weeks we've been in contact with the folks behind Halo Waypoint, Microsoft's hub for all things Halo on the Xbox 360. As of this weekend, the fruits of those labors have started to ripen, and you can now savor the sweet nectar of select Halo-focused Giant Bomb videos on your Xbox 360! Like it was fruit!  Metaphors!

We've currently got two videos up on Waypoint: there's "You Say Goodbye, I Say Halo" a featurette that does such a perfect job of compressing the punch-drunk insanity of our attempted six-and-a-half hour live stream of the end of original Xbox Live that it gives me combat flashbacks. If you're looking for more reasons to get pumped up about the pending Halo: Reach Multiplayer Beta, we've also got "Ask Me Anything: Halo: Reach Beta" where Vinny grills Drew and Brad about their recent hands-on time with the next addition to the Halo family. 

If you haven't already, you can grab Halo Waypoint through the Games section on your 360, or you can queue it up through Xbox.com. Once you load it up, just hit the Intel button, and you'll (as of this writing) see both videos in the What's New section. You will need an Xbox Live Gold account to use Halo Waypoint, but this is by far the easiest way (at the moment) to get some Giant Bomb video action on your big-ass TV. Also, I personally get really jazzed when I get to see Giant Bomb content up on the Xbox like that, and the more people that watch these videos, the better the chances are we'll get to do more stuff like this in the future!

 I'll have to be sure to look out for this. Quite awesome. Haven't actually installed Halo Waypoint yet, but yeah, this is a heck of an incentive, helping Giant Bomb out to do awesome things.

Downloading it while my girlfriend plays Fable, she's not going to like the part where I ask her to stop momentarily.

Nice job.

#11 Posted by fwylo (3556 posts) -

Awesome, this will be crazy advertising for GiantBomb as well.  Expect a few new users.

That's awesome guys! Soon as I can I'll be firing up my system to check out the vids on my 'not so big-ass' TV. Hope to see more and keep up the good work!!

I don't like Halo but I love GiantBomb doing videos on the teevee.

#18 Posted by Devilsalias (8 posts) -

That's awesome guys, pretty soon there will be quick looks on XBOX LIVE VIDEO MARKETPLACE!

#19 Posted by Belonpopo (1823 posts) -

Kewl.

#20 Posted by JJWeatherman (14557 posts) -

I watched the videos on Waypoint. I think my gamertag popped up on the end of Xbox live video for just a half a second. Awesome.

#21 Posted by Hitchenson (4682 posts) -

That's awesome. I'll continue to watch all the videos on the site, but it's cool it's happening. 

#22 Posted by Bhouse563 (158 posts) -

If this works out (which it will) You guys should push for a monthly or weekly spot on the Dashboard!!!!!

#23 Posted by zombie2011 (4968 posts) -

Wow this is pretty awesome, this is great advertising for the site. MS and Giantbomb!

#24 Posted by OmegaRedSix (28 posts) -

Man, can things get any better than combining Giant Bomb and Halo Waypoint? I submit to you that they cannot.

#25 Posted by Ashen (125 posts) -

Dude what? this is awesome, time to dl halo waypoint.

#26 Posted by TerraDelu (500 posts) -

Way to go guys! Super awesome to see you dudes on Xbox Live!

#27 Posted by Hamz (6846 posts) -

Kind of makes me wish I had a 360 just to view this on my big ass TV.
 
Still a big congratulations to the team, this was a triumph!

Giantbomb on the big screen!

#29 Posted by Pazy (2561 posts) -

I dont have Gold (dont play online enough) or a good enough connection to just watch both videos without reason but I might if they are good enough but I have to ask if the video's are unuiqe. Is it the same stuff you can get here or is it only on Waypoint? If its only on Waypoint I might put in a 48 hour card I have lying around to watch it.

#30 Posted by diz (906 posts) -

Huge news for GB! Well done.

#31 Posted by Milkman (16486 posts) -

I didn't get to see the monster 6 hour stream so the Waypoint video was a perfect way of getting a shortened version of that.

#32 Posted by some1 (202 posts) -

Giant Bomb on MY Xbox? It's more likely than you think. 

#33 Posted by Bummey (604 posts) -

Gold members only, of course. :|

...they grow up so fast

#35 Posted by Spookie (52 posts) -

I guess that explains why the site dropped quicker than a hookers knickers.

#36 Posted by Dustpan (1690 posts) -

This is fabulous.

#37 Posted by Blair (2497 posts) -

Fantastic exposure, boys!  I'm so glad to be a part of this.

#38 Posted by Bennyishere (1685 posts) -

This is great! GiantBomb will see so much success that Microsoft does a deal with them, and we will be seeing complete Giant Bomb integration, including an app on your 360 that lets you access all the features of GiantBomb. Then... world domination.

#39 Posted by crusader8463 (14412 posts) -

Sigh, sad to see giant bomb content being locked behind pay gates. I hope it's going to be up on the site eventually. I suppose grats for getting on something like that, I'm sure it will boost site views, but boo on you for locking away content behind the god dam gold account scam that is x-box live.

#40 Posted by PerryVandell (2103 posts) -

This is awesome, Giant Bomb is expanding and getting more notice.

#41 Edited by soralapio (261 posts) -
More Drew = more fun. Don't see why this wouldn't be true on Xbox Live!
#42 Posted by Fubar (165 posts) -

Gonna wait for the PSN version ...

#43 Edited by Lilarcor (213 posts) -
The more exposure Giant Bomb gets, the better. I'm not a big Halo fan, but I'll definitely download these videos (through my Xbox, I've already watched them on the site) in order to give you guys a boost. 
 
@crusader8463:
Dude, you know these videos are both on the site already and have been for days... right?
#44 Posted by ISmoochyI (251 posts) -

sooooo sweet!

#45 Posted by alternate (2679 posts) -

would be nice to have site version of the edited live stream.

#46 Posted by Lambert (404 posts) -

So, I'm guessing this game will be getting a 5/5 now...
 
Sellouts...

#47 Posted by Sanryd (1362 posts) -

This is awesome! I didn't watch the whole livestream, only caught the beginning, so it'll be cool to see the highlights.

#48 Posted by ez123 (1944 posts) -
@Lilarcor: "You Say Goodbye and I say Halo" on Waypoint seems to be a different video.  It's an edited version of Xboxalypse but I haven't seen it anywhere else.
